In the week leading up to the ANZAC centenary on 25 April, Liverpool City Council honoured our ANZAC heroes by projecting large scale portraits of Liverpool’s First World War soldiers in the CBD every evening from 6pm-midnight.
“The city of Liverpool has a rich and unique link to Australia’s World War I history, as the site of the Liverpool Training Camp and the Holsworthy Internment Camp, which both played pivotal roles in Australia’s war efforts at home and abroad; and this link continues today with the Holsworthy Army Barracks,” explained Mayor Ned Mannoun.
“It is appropriate that as a community we stop and reflect on our history in this significant year. These large scale visual projections are a fitting way of doing this in the lead up to Council’s ANZAC Day event on April 25 at Bigge Park. I invite the community to visit the projections and take the time to reflect on the sacrifices of our servicemen and women.”
Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre Director Kiersten Fishburn said: “The projections will be a haunting and visually stunning reminder of our strong ANZAC links here in Liverpool, and an appropriate way to honour our ANZAC heroes.”
Location: Liverpool Train Station
Date: Projections run from Saturday 18 April – Sunday 26 April, 6pm-12am
